Hillary + Claudio's Colorful Cabin Wedding

Sometimes an inquiry floats our way with a name that rings some bells. When Hillary reached out, it only took me a few minutes to realize why she sounded so familiar to me; way back in the day we were in the same girl scout troop. And now? We were going to get to work together for her wedding day! It’s so special to me that past acquaintances and friends choose Form Floral for their wedding celebrations and this was no exception.

Hillary and Claudio tied the knot in a family cabin in Heber Arizona. The day was full of color and biiiig, full blooms. Oh! And did I mention they had a confetti exit from their ceremony? Yeah. It was reallll good. Scroll through for our favorite details from their day!

Melissa & Jeremy's L'Auberge de Sedona Wedding

In 2017 we were the busiest we’ve ever been. We were so busy, in fact, that I didn’t make any time to share the work we were creating. So, I’m excited to throw it back this week to a summer wedding from 2017 that was an absolute joy to create.

Burgundy and Blush Wedding at L'Auberge de Sedona

Melissa and Jeremy tied the knot in the red rocks of Sedona at the gorgeous L’auberge resort. Melissa wasn’t afraid of a bit of color so we leaned into a color palette of reds and pinks nestled into containers that leaned a bit more classic. Paired with all white details at their reception, the blooms popped beautifully while tying in the colors from the mountains in the background.

Mary & Taylor's Flagstaff Wedding

This wedding is near and dear to my heart because the bride and I go waaaaayyyy back. I met Mary in elementary school and went to school with her through the end of high school. We were tight when we were youngsters and over the years grew in different directions but always remained friendly. I think there’s a magic of childhood friendships that just pick back up wherever you are in life. Mary and Taylor met in high school and created a life together in the years that followed. They have an incredibly sweet sort of love and it was an absolute honor to create their floral arrangements for their wedding.

Holly & Kori's Late Summer Sedona Wedding

We LOVE working in Sedona. Love it. Those red rocks are BREATHTAKING and to be honest, we can't get enough of that view. I also think that the energy in Sedona sets the perfect stage for a happy, dreamy wedding day.

Last September, Holly & Kori tied the knot among the red rocks then celebrated their new marriage at Tlaquepaque. Their day had all the right desert touches alongside a beautiful, upscale design details. It's a wedding we've been dying to share and I can't wait to walk you through all the beauty today!!

Let's start by talking about flower crowns. I will always and forever support tiny crowns for tiny people. They are never, not cute and you definitely need them. and while we're on the topic... You know what else we support? Floral collars on dogs. The cute overload is EVERYTHING.

Holly and Kori's standing ceremony was one for the books. If you're planning a short ceremony, you can skip chairs entirely. I love the intimacy this set-up created and the connection between the guests and the happy couple.

Following their ceremony, Holly and Kori moved to Tlaquepaque with their guests to celebrate. This sweet space is one of our favorite places to work and you're about to see exactly why.

Guest tables were marked by calligraphed cactus paddles and the centerpieces alternated between fun, desert inspired arrangements and candles in gorgeous, minimal glass cylinders. The set-up was simple but the end result was incredibly chic.

One of my favorite details throughout the reception were the terra cotta signs. Each guests' seat was marked by a calligraphed terra cotta plate and this detail was mirrored in their menu signage and in small cacti potted in terra cotta at each table.

Chelsea + Mike's Sky Ranch Lodge Sedona Wedding

Chelsea and Mike's wedding took place in Sedona at the sky ranch lodge with one of the best views I've ever seen. These sweet lovebirds met when Mike hired Chelsea to work in his first bar/restaurant and after working together for a month, they were certain they were soul mates. Fast forward six years to a dreamy beach proposal on vacation in Santa Monica (you can see the photos of it over on Chelsea's blog!) that left them both floating on cloud nine as they began wedding planning.

Chelsea and Mike's ceremony had the most incredible view of the red rocks in the background. All the rest of her decor was kept neutral so the focus could be on the beauty in the nature around them.

We loved the fun details Chelsea and Mike peppered into their wedding day. At the entrance to the ceremony, guests were able to stop into The Foto Booth Bus and snap some photos with a whole collection of cute props. I also love that sweet lil' VW as a fun detail for portraits.

After the ceremony, guests headed in to find their seats in the beautifully lit reception space. A dreamcatcher held name cards to guide guests to their tables and brought in the perfect boho touch.

If you're torn between adding color or focusing on a neutral palette - stress no more. Recently we've seen many of our couples choose a classic color palette for their ceremony than add in more color at their reception. You get a great balance of timeless designs and more of-the-moment floral without sacrificing on either. You can do the same with a flower crown. I love that Chelsea kept her look more pared down for her ceremony and portraits then added a big flower crown to party the night away at her reception.

Pro tip: You CAN have it all. Who knew?
